UPDATE: The pattern for Mr/Ms Sockfish is now complete and available through the Giving Flower for $5. It’s a great way to use up those small pieces of great prints you’ve been saving, and it’s fun to make, and functional. Fun, fun! If you are interested, email her. You can pay through paypal and she will email the pattern in a pdf file. Could it get any easier?
Kimberly at Giving Flower is putting together a pattern to sell, and I was honored when she asked me to test sew it. Here is the final product. Ladies and gentlemen (if there are any reading), let me introduce you to Ms. Sockfish. She is designed for sock knitters – long enough for sock needles, a thick canvas exterior to keep the needles from poking through, and little fin pockets to hold scissors or stitch markers. Isn’t she lovely?
Okay, okay, I should have made her lips red, but I just wasn’t thinking.
My kids like her. When I opened up her mouth and said, “You look yummy,” and made her swim toward my son, he screamed – about 75% in fear and 20% in laughter. The other 5% came just because he loves screaming. I think the fear came from the fact that her tummy looked soooo incredibly big and deep. Wouldn’t you be scared if this thing came after you???
I’m not a sock knitter, but my knitted purse in progress will fit in here just fine. Great job, Kimberly!
